Lieut Samuel Beard Deed Brought for Record the 17th day of June 1726 
and Recorded by me — Joseph Curtiss Register — in ye 4th Book folio 50 — 



Author's Preface. 

The originator of this Beard genealogy was Rev. John Gunn 
Beard, of Ellington, Conn. He collected and verified many of the 
early records of the family. After his death, his widow gave the 
papers to Rev. Willard L. Beard, of Foochow, China, to arrange, but 
he did not find the time to do the necessary work. Mrs. Martha Clark 
and Miss Emily Beard, of Milford, Conn., next undertook the task, 
but ill health prevented their compiling the book. Then the records 
were placed in my hands for completion. 

In collecting and arranging these records, care has been taken 
to verify, as far as possible, the dates of births, marriages and deaths 
and other statements. 

Efforts have been made to trace each descendant, but many letters 
have been either returned or unanswered. Doubtless errors will be 
found, but from those who have wrestled with a similar work and 
realize the difficulties attendant upon it I am sure I shall have an appre- 
ciative sympathy. 

The sources, not otherwise mentioned, from which I have verified 
much of the history of the Beard family, are Savage's Genealogical 
Dictionary, Orcutt's Histories of Derby and Stratford, The Colonial 
Records, Connecticut Men of the Revolution, the early records of Mil- 
ford, Stratford and Huntington, Lambert's History of the New Haven 
Colony, Mr. Erastus Scranton's History of the Township of Milford, 
Story of the Memorial in Honor of the Founders of the Town of Mil- 
ford, by Nathan C. Pond, and Who's Who in America. 

To Mr. Oliver G. Beard of Shelton, Conn., is due thanks for the 
financial aid necessary in the publication of these records and for the 
loaning of the old manuscripts from which the three plates in this book 
are taken. 

To the various members of the family who have so generously 
helped in preparing these records I wish to express my gratitude for 
their courtesy and hope they will find their reward in seeing their line 
of descent traced and preserved for future generations.

A 5hort History of the Founding of Milford, Conn. 



Since Widow Martha Beard was one of the first settlers of Mil- 
ford, it may interest her descendants to include in this book a little of 
the early history of that town. 

In the spring of 1639, the English first began to make a settlement 
in Milford. 

The colonists arrived in Boston, Mass., June 26, 1637, m two 
ships, one called Hector. They came down to New Haven, Conn., 
and remained there during the year 1638. 

On Feb. 2, 1639, agents in behalf of the settlers made the first 
purchase of land from the Indian proprietors. "It comprehended the 
tract of land lying between the East river and the Housatonic, and 
the sea with the Island south, and the two mile Indian path to Paugas- 
set (Derby) north." The consideration given was "6 coats, 10 blankets, 
1 kettle, 12 hatchets, 12 hoes, 2 dozen knives and a dozen small glasses 
(mirrors)." 

"The instrument was signed on the day aforesaid, by the Saga- 
more and his council. The business was transacted with formality 
and possession given according to the Indian method of 'twig and 
turf/ A twig and a piece of turf being brought to the Sagamore, he 
placed the end of the branch in the clod and then gave it to the English 
as token he thereby surrendered to them the soil and all the trees and 
appurtenances." 

In all, eight separate purchases of land were made, buying "twig 
and turf and all," the Indians reserving to themselves the rights of 
hunting, fowling and fishing throughout the whole tract. 

The number of free planters in the colony was 44, no others having 
the liberty to act in the choice of carrying on public affairs in the 
plantation. They were all professors of the Christian religion. Alto- 
gether there were probably about 200 individuals and 54 families in 
the settlement. 

The body of planters traveled from New Haven to Milford by 
land, following the devious Indian foot path and driving their cattle 
and other domestic animals before them. Their materials for the com- 
mon house and their farming utensils they sent around by water. Ser- 
geant Timothy Tibbals piloted the company through the woods, he 
having been there before and liking the place. 

Upon arriving in Milford, they erected the common house and 
a few rude huts for their temporary abodes. As soon as they were 
established they combined themselves into a little republic. 

At their first meeting, held Nov. 20, 1639, it was "voted and 



8 BEARD GENEALOGY. 

agreed that the power of electing officers and persons to divide the 
land into lots, to take orders for the timber, and to manage the com- 
mon interests of the plantation should be in the church only, and that 
the persons so chosen should be only from among themselves." 

Also, "voted that they would guide themselves in all their doings 
by the written Word of God, till such a time as a body of laws should 
be established." 

These first settlers located on each side of the Mill river and West 
End brook. Their "house lotts" were laid out in parallel slips, con- 
taining about three acres each. Some had double lots — two slips 
adjoining. In consideration of her affliction, Widow Martha Beard 
was given an extra amount of "house lott," her share being 4a. ir. 
Each planter had to erect a good house on his lot within three years, 
or it was to go back to the town. 

The Indian name of this towm was Wepowage. On Nov. 24, 1640, 
with the common consent and the general vote of the freemen the 
plantation was named Milford. 

At a general meeting Nov. 22, 1643, it was voted how many acres 
of "house lott," upland and meadow T should be assigned to each of the 
settlers, of whom only six had as large a portion as Widow Martha 
Beard. She had 6 acres of "house lott," 37/^ of upland, and 19 of 
meadow. At three different times the allotment of land given to her 
by the town was increased. 

The pastor of this colony, Peter Prudden, came from Edgeton, 
Yorkshire, England, and probably most of the planters came from 
Yorkshire and Herefordshire, England, where he preached previous to 
his immigration. 

Many of them came to New England in Messrs. Eaton's and 
Davenport's company. Other of the colonists came from Wethersfield, 
Conn., where Mr. Prudden preached prior to the settlement at Milford. 
These originally came from Essex, England, in Sir Richard Salton- 
stall's Company. 

The names of these first settlers are engraved on the Memorial 
Bridge in Milford, and with the names is inscribed this quotation from 
Straughton, of the Massachusetts colony, "God sifted a whole nation 
that he might send choice seed-grain over into this wilderness." 



A Genealogy of the Descendants of Widow 

Martha Beard. 



FIR5T GENERATION. 

Martha Beard came from England, with her husband and five 
children, and settled in Milford, Conn., in 1639. She was one 
of the first settlers of that town. Her husband, whose name 
tradition says was James, and probably this is correct as his 
eldest son was called James, died on the ship (Martin?) in 
passage from England to America. She was admitted to the 
First Congregational Church of Milford, Nov. 1, 1640. This 
church was organized in 1639'. She died June 11, 1649. 

It is interesting to note that the "house lott" originally 
owned bv Widow Martha Beard has never been deeded out of 
the family, but has passed down in the line of direct descent 
from generation to generation and is now owned by George J. 
Smith. The old house has been removed and Mr. Smith resides 
in another, erected near the site of the old Beard homestead. 

Mr. Charles C. Beard, of Shelton, Conn., has in his pos- 
session a sword which, tradition says, was brought from Eng- 
land by Martha Beard and her husband. It is a straight, very 
narrow, two-edged, pointed sword, evidently used for thrusting. 
This rapier type of sword was used in England during the 
latter part of the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. 



SECOND GENERATION. 

Children of Martha Beard. 

2. James, died t6j2, unmarried. His estate was settled by Captain 

Act W ood, Judge, and was the first estate administered upon in 
Milford. 

3. John. There is a story that this John, who was a carpenter by trade, 

hnded in Milford just as the frame of the large, two-galleried, 
blue church had been erected, and that he took a sledge-hammer 
and, walking all over the frame, struck every pin in it to show 
what he could do.

10 BEARD GENEALOGY. 

From early records, we learn that he was a prominent citizen 
of the town of Milford. He was the ancestor of all of that name in 
that vicinity. Tradition says that he was a man of import. He 
was born in England and came to America with his mother, in 
1639. He was married about 1653 to Anna Hawley, sister of 
Joseph Hawley, of Stratford, Conn. She had previously been the 
wife of John Uffoote, (modern Oviatte), but at her desire had 
been divorced from him. She was a peculiar woman, as old records 
show. He was one of the 46 persons enrolled as freemen in Mil- 
ford, September, 1669. At a meeting of the Council of Connecticut, 
Jan. 17, 1675, he was appointed captain of a Military company, and 
he took part in King Phillip's war. He was chosen deputy from 
Milford to the General Court for the October term, 1677, and was 
a member at most of the semi-annual sessions for seven years in 
succession — the exceptions being October, 1681, and 1683, an d 
May and October, 1684. There was no session in 1688, Andross 
being in power. The last session when he was a member was in 
May, 1690. He was therefore elected 22 times out of 26. He was 
frequently appointed by the General Court, commissioner to settle 
boundaries, etc. His name appears often on the Colonial Records, 
and always a9 Captaine John Beard. 

He died September, 1690. His estate was valued at 1180 
pounds, 5 shillings, and 50 pence. One-third of it was given to 
the widow, and the rest was divided among his children. Wife 
died 1698. 

4. Jeremiah was propounded for freeman by the General Court at Hart- 
ford, May 11, 1671. He married but died without children in

says the record. Lambert adds, "They may have let their wives 
have a little of it."

6. Martha, married John Streame, Dec. 20, 1649. He came with his 
uncle, Zechariah Whitman, from London to Boston, on the "True-

in 1646 and was propounded freeman of Connecticut, 1665. He 
was confirmed ensigne of the Milford Traine-Band, 1669. Widow
